We thought it was pretty strange, so I told his day care teacher about it. She wasn’t surprised at all. For the last month, they’ve been focusing on using their imaginations. As part of this experience, they’ve been reading a book about animals. Each page has many animals, so she’s taken to pointing at one and saying, “that’s Kashyapi”, or “that’s Sam”. Sam’s animal in that book is the lion.
Apparently Sam thougth it was great fun to imagine himself as a lion. Now he’s imagining himself as a brachiosaurus.
